Review of Emerald Sun

Emerald Sun (built in 2015) is the third among Emerald Waterways identical sister ships, with fleetmates Emerald Sky, Emerald StarEmerald Dawn and Emerald Destiny (2017). The expansion of the fleet continues in 2017 with the launch of Emerald Radiance (Portugal) and Emerald Liberte (France).

Emerald Waterways is a new river line, established in 2014 and owned by Scenic Tours company. Like the new longships of Viking River Cruises, the innovations onboard Emerald Waterways ships make these vessels an alternative to ocean cruise vacations. Emerald Sun adds more choices of itineraries and sailing dates for the aficionados of European luxury river cruise ship travel – an all-inclusive style. 

Emerald Sun cruise ship

One of the most innovative features on any of Emerald Waterways cruise ships is the dual-purpose pool and movie theater on aft Horizon Deck. A glass ceiling above can slide open in good weather. Meals are served in the open seating Reflections - ship's main dining room. The al-fresco dining area, The Terrace, is situated at the bow and serves as an informal dining venue for breakfast and lunch. The Horizon Bar & Lounge has floor-to-ceiling windows and offers hot entrées, cold cuts, soups and other snacks. There is also a salad bar at lunchtime. A trio of putting greens is located on the Sun Deck.

The ship has a total of 92 staterooms in 5 categories for 182 guests served by 47 crew members. All cabins have maximum capacity of 2 passengers per cabin. 75% of all rooms are Suites with a balcony (in-room/step-out veranda). 

Emerald Sun has 4 passenger decks, night cinema covered with sliding roof, indoor swimming pool, Gym, Spa, massage room, 1 elevator and passenger-use bikes.

Emerald Sun wiki
